Project Quality Day

This year’s Project Quality Day will focus on quality, testing and quality engineering in IoT, Industry 4.0, and digitalization. Enter your talks about what challenges you see, how we can use technology or process to overcome them, and examples and ideas of testing interconnected systems.

What do the testers of the future look like?

There are toasters that are more networked and smarter than I am....

 

Our world and our projects have become much more technical. But at the same time, so much more involved in human life and activities. Software is integrated everywhere into our lives, and so human factors can no longer be separated from the technology.

 

What does that mean for testers? Will machines test everything so we're no longer needed? WIll we only need developers in the future? How will the tester role develop over the coming years?

Using sensors to reduce wasted support time: a case study for testing in IoT

A well-designed and tested IoT product should successfully help customers save money based on the information the system produces – but what can that look like for a real customer, and how can testing be done in the project?

In this talk, I will present a case study for a customer who produces metal-pressing machines for the can industry. The customer’s aim is to reduce unnecessary support visits to production sites: by measuring various parameters of the machine, they can determine whether the support case may have been caused e.g. by changing the thickness of the metal.

Tackling the Challenges of IoT and AI - Quality Engineering and Skills

Abstract:

The Internet of Things and Artificial Intelligence are undoubtedly key elements on the stony path to Digital Transformation and future software development. Both are not new but technical reality for our projects and products over decades. However, the new feature is the scaling effect of IoT and AI explosively penetrating the software world.

I am what IAM - the testing challenges of digital transformation

Quite a few years ago, augmented reality entered our daily lives imposing digital perspectives on reality without actually ‘touching’ it. Devices like phones, tablets, televisions and cars only enrich information and our experiences for all kinds of reasons. But lately it shows that this was just the beginning of a major transition where those devices are not merely ‘dumb’ things that provide information; they’re able to actually ‘do’ things on their own. Interacting with consumers as well as with each other is making them part of our human reality.

Eclipse IoT-Testware: The Open-Source testing solution

According to the Eclipse’s IoT Developer Survey from the past years, Security, Interoperability and Connectivity are the key challenges for IoT. While these topics constantly rank in the top five, comprehensive open-source solutions are still rare.

This session will introduce the attendees to the roots and motivation of the Eclipse IoT-Testware. Building on this, the major concerns of future IoT will be examined, possible solutions proposed and underpinned with examples.

Ethics in software testing - from theory to practice

Often presentations about Ethics in software development and testing stay on a theoretical level. If one cares about his topic and wants to become an ethical software tester or developer that’s not enough.

Everyone needs to prepare oneself to be able to respond to ethical dilemmas properly. This workshop will enable participants to prepare themselves by bringing them in practical contact with real life ethical problems.

VR Testing - The Testing Trinity

This talk focuses on VR and what is “new” for testers.

While software and hardware as testing areas are kind of “known”, in VR the immersion of the human in the middle is “new” and needs different testing approaches.

How the human reacts physically and psysically brings new challenges.

From Motion sickness over whole immersion to the dulling of the tester .. these are new problems, where testers also become a part of the product (as do users).

Which kind of testing is needed in the age of IoT?

The world of computing is experiencing a time of radical changes. Software is running more and more parts of the world and the decades old vision of ubiquitous computing is becoming a reality thanks to the Internet of Things.
We can control our home by talking to it and have all of humanities knowledge available in a shiny black rectangle in the palm of our hand. All of this just works - flawlessly.
